Foster directed and co-starred in the film about a man who sinks into a state of depression and can only communicate via a puppet. In the interview she admits to having a personal connection to the topic, saying, “Depression is a part of all of our lives. Everyone has experience with it either in their own families or with friends.”
She discusses how people don’t always have answers, and while the path might not always be clear, there are people who want to help, saying,
“There are many people out there who have the capacity to understand depression and mental illness. We can’t give up on one another. We are not alone in this experience and in this life. We are born with comedy and tragedy, and that is, in some ways, the human condition. But, at the end of the day, we have each other.”
